I am thinking it is smart $$ covering short positions with significant profits - buying up shares from dumb retail shorts. I agree that strong hands are holding the stock now and they understand what they own, and will not think about selling until they see the numbers and guidance. Further risk to short position holders is that IF the numbers surprise to the upside...Longs will buy more, and BBRY becomes a rocket ship.
They were talking about "Wash Trades" in CFTC. Highly illegal. Basically, right hand selling to the left hand. Regulator claims they have computer to detect them now.
Some crooks even have a group of traders that work together.
May be cleanup crew already looking at Nasdaq!!!!
